SMART GRID AND ELECTRICAL DEVICES CERTIFICATION COURSE
SMART GRID AND ELECTRICAL DEVICES CERTIFICATION COURSE OVERVIEW
With significant advancements in smart grid technology, power companies are integrating ‘smart’ electrical devices into their electrical systems. The Smart Grid and Electrical Devices Certification course introduces students to many of the smart devices now used by power companies. Unable to be obtained anywhere else, this certification is valued by large utilities, and helps NLC graduates stand out. In this class, students take theories learned in the Electrical Systems course and put
them into practice in our specially designed Smart Grid Electrical Equipment lab. Using simulated energized lines, students are trained to operate specialized
smart grid electrical equipment, including reclosers (OVR, hydraulic, electronic), SEL- 351r and Form 3A controllers, SmartBank/UltraVac capacitor banks, voltage regulators
with CL-6A control boxes, fixed capacitor banks, overhead and underground
switches, and more.
Successful completion of ELPA 1202 Electrical
Systems and ELPA1204 Basic Electrical
Theory (with exception of final exams).
